Ever since I started blogging, I’ve experimented with my style to really try and figure myself out. While my personal style is an ever evolving thing, I’ve come a long way since I started. One thing I do know, is style and fashion is as unique as the person wearing the outfit.

The interesting thing about being a self-proclaimed style blogger/expert/enthusiast is people sometimes expect you to be a fashion know-it-all. While I love fashion and eat sleep and breathe style, my own style is always somewhat mysterious; something I can’t really describe in a few words.
Like a lot of you, I’m sure, I don’t think my personal aesthetic fits into a particular style category (preppy, all black, trendy, vintage, sporty…). I like trying new trends, but I can’t seem to squeeze myself into a box with constraints on what I can and cannot wear based on a set of imaginary rules.
This outfit is a clash of different “style worlds.” My whimsical embroidered top is from SheIn, and kind of screams eclectic trendy style. My skirt is on the way opposite of the spectrum, as it is from J.Crew, probably the preppiest store ever and known for classic pieces. I won’t list everything I’m wearing and the stereotypical style attributes, but you get the point.
I shop at SheIn, J.Crew, department stores, JustFab, ASOS, Free People, Loft, you name it. If I like a piece, it doesn’t matter where it is from, or what particular style box it checks. Putting together an unexpected combo is what makes all of us unique, and that’s what I truly love about fashion.

p.s. – Stay tuned for TOMORROW’S POST – You’ll be the first to see my NEW HAIR on the blog!
My favorite look from last week’s link-up was Ada from Elegance and Mommyhood!
Ada has been my blogger friend for awhile now, and she always find the cutest things from Target. Her dress is from the Who What Wear collection, and she matched the yellow floral with her purse! It reminds me of Italian high fashion, which is full of whimsy and fun patterns. Check out Ada’s blog, where she frequently features her adorable daughter’s outfits, too!
